06 Jul 2015 16:04
West European car sales rose 14.3% year-on-year in June, industry data showed today, as Britain, Germany, France and Spain to deliver double-digit gains, although Ireland’s figures dropped.
Car sales increased to 1.31m registrations last month, from 1.15m in the same month a year earlier and 1.06m in May, data from LMC Automotive showed, as major markets shrugged off political uncertainty in the run-up to Greece's bailout referendum. Almost all markets performed well, helped by extra selling days.
Only Greece, Ireland and Finland showed a fall in June sales compared with a year earlier, dropping 21.6%, 14% and 2.5% respectively, LMC said.
Last week, Irish industry body the SIMI released figures showing the first year-on-year decline in Ireland since December 2013.
